First, consider what you can get for $600 a month in rent. In most cases, your best bet is to choose a studio apartment in the better-appointed apartment communities. These apartment complexes are often buildings constructed in the 1960s and 70s. Most have been brightened with remodeled, modern accommodations and nicely designed public areas. Many offer swimming pools, volleyball courts, clubhouses, barbecues, covered parking and laundry facilities. On the other hand, rent in some of these apartment communities does not include all utilities.

If you need an apartment that is larger than a studio, you may find some one-bedroom apartments in smaller, older apartment complexes. Many of these communities don’t offer extra amenities such as swimming pools and clubhouses, but they usually still include laundry facilities and covered parking. Some of these apartment buildings may also be in less safe neighborhoods, so check crime statistics for the neighborhood you are considering.

Whether you want to live near ASU, Arizona Mills or South Mountain, rent prices are fairly consistent throughout the region. That means you won’t pay more to live near ASU versus Mesa Community College in general. However, there are a handful of neighborhoods that command higher rents, especially the chic loft and luxury apartments near downtown and Tempe Town Lake. There are few of these apartment communities, and they often limit their occupancy to tenants who are older than 23 years old.

In searching for an apartment that costs less than $600, be sure to estimate extra costs related to the apartment you’re considering. If the apartment cost doesn’t include all utilities, research your potential extra expenses. Transportation, Internet service and cooling costs should also be considered in your evaluation.
